Looking down the Cotton Mountain Trail
Route: Cotton Mountain Trail
A balmy 9 degrees prior to sunrise. First portion of the trail has been used for logging at some point this winter. Basically a skating rink. Microspikes were adequate.
Some yahoo attempted to snowmobile the foot trail above the road section, but eventually realized he had run out of snow. Once you get into the woods above the logging roads, it's mostly bare with occasional short patches of frozen granular or blue ice.
